Yom HaShoah event by Jewish Federation
The 27th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan was set aside by Israel's Knesset(Parliament) in 1951, as a day of mourning for the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust. Yom HaShoah has since become an annual commemoration around the world.
Anti-Semitism and Nazism did not die with the end of World War II. The Shoah (Holocaust) is a reminder of the potential for evil that lies beneath the veneer of civilization. The seeds of the Holocaust must not be allowed to find fertile soil ever again.
This is only possible through remembrance and education, and we are obligated as human beings to ensure that the difficult lesson of the Holocaust is learned, and tat together we ensure no such tragedy befalls any people in the future.
